Diet Doc, modernizer of the Hcg Diet, announces their use of the nutrient-rich MCT / weight loss oil, proven by scientists to aid in overall weight loss in their diet plan.
For decades, researchers have found that medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil has many benefits. Clinical studies have show that consumption of MCT leads to greater energy expenditure. Derived from coconut oil, MCT is so beneficial that it is found in hospital formulas to feed infants, critically ill and those who have digestive problems.
Diet Doc is the only manufacturer of this type of weight loss / MCT oil which has 100% pure MCT. The two other manufacturers dilute with 42% glycerin.
A study done by researchers at Columbia University found that all of the subjects who consumed MCT oil for the duration of the study resulted in overall weight loss and concluded that consumption of MCT oil as part of a weight-loss plan improves weight loss compared with olive oil and can be successfully included in a weight-loss diet. 1
After years of consideration, Diet Doc has made this oil a vital part of their diet plan. Their modernized version of Dr. Simeons famed Hcg diet uses a ketogenic diet in replace of the usual restricted 500 calorie diet. This diet, popular among bodybuilders, puts the body into a state of ketosis, a metabolic state where fat is used as a source of fuel instead of sugar. In order to keep the body in this state, Diet Doc added MCT oil to their meal plan to help people achieve and stay in the fat burning metabolic state of ketosis. According to Dr. Rao, medical director for Diet Doc, the addition of MCT oil to our diet plan provides satiety along with a fast source of medium chain triglycerides to be metabolized to provide long-lasting energy. This helps prevent the drop in ones basal metabolic rate (BMR) associated with a more restrictive 500 calorie diet because there is a more stable source of energy during the low calorie phase of the diet.
Diet Doc provides medically supervised custom weight-loss programs for their patients. They also offer a variety of pre-made meal plans, nutrient-rich shakes and bars as well as weight-loss supplements. Their program is a proven success and are now expanding to various locations around the country. Dr. Rao states, we are passionate about what we do and results show through the time and effort we put into each individual.
